This week has been an interesting one. Between work, exams, and making sure all my assignments are done so I can do, well, nothing this weekend, it’s been pretty busy. It will all pay off when I’m able to curl up at the—hopefully warm—beach this weekend with my new Kurt Vonnegut book.

There are only three weeks of school left. I can’t believe that my last quarter here is coming to an end! It’s definitely going to be a bittersweet last few weeks. My roommate and I decided that we’d try to do something fun and memorable every day for the rest of the quarter. We saw the partial solar eclipse this past Sunday at the Campus Center mall, where the physics department had all telescopes, solar filters, and other cool gadgets set up. Other days have been more memorable than fun, but sometimes that’s how college seems to be. It’s strange to think that in a few weeks I won’t have to wake up at 7:30 a.m. to go jogging, or make sure my papers are turned in before midnight.

Also included on our list are seeing the Dramatic Arts Society production of The Crucible, which premiered Thursday, and going to see award-winning novelist Maxine Hong Kingston speak at Colloquy next week. These might seem out of place in our list of “fun and memorable” things, but we’re both English majors. Our ideas of fun put others to sleep, which is fine with me. Then I can read in peace, with no younger brothers bugging me. Yes, I’m talking to you, Tim. I have no idea why the only times you talk to me on campus are when I’m reading. Thank goodness you don’t talk in your sleep.
